The Movember Australia car![/caption] You may notice something a bit different about us. It's not a haircut or a new t-shirt, Some of us have made the decision to donate the upper lip to the Movember movement. Over the 30 days of November, We are growing a moustache while raising funds and awareness for men's health. http://mobro.co/baske...­ I’m passionate about Movember because they are working tirelessly every day connecting and funding the best scientific and clinical minds in the world, working towards two urgent goals. Fast tracking a time when no man will die from prostate or testicular cancer, and to rid the world of discrimination against men and boys with mental health problems. You can donate online at http://mobro.co/baske...­ We are at $50 currently. Thank you and I appreciate your support. -- Digital 613 “show n tell” For all you digital types out there, several members in the group will be talking about what we do in a simple show and tell format, so all the graphic designer, illustrators, front end / back end developers, entrepreneurs, mentors and business owners come along and geek out on that thing that drives you that your passionate about, come along  get inspired. Dates to be confirmed looking at this week. -- Summer DECEMBER 3 on 3 competition now taking registrations. • Want to play more competitively? Now is the time to start pushing yourself if you want to compete in the upcoming 3on3 competition. You may not know that a group from outside Basketball613 took the glory away from us in spring! The reason for this is that they played well as a team & scored efficiently. To combat this we suggest: o Register early at http://www.basketball...­ o Then every time you play at our regular weekly events, team up with the same players that you will be with in the upcoming competition! (don’t have a team? You can be allocated one) o Spend time during the week strengthening up your ball handling, shot, cardio or whatever needs work. Of course sleep / eat well and then… o Do your best on the day! Note in spring we found people had missed emails because their inbox was unorganised, hope your on top of that now. =) -- BBQ Sunday, December 14, 2014 for all our regulars this year, meaning the people who attended more than 5 games will be welcomed to grab a bite to eat on us, followed by a bit of shoot around at the court next to the BBQ at burnley park. RSVP on meetup so we know how many cater for. Best players will be presented with awards. Feel free to contact harry - [email protected]
